Simply put, a vaccine trains the immune system to recognize viruses, bacteria, and other germs, or pathogens, so the body can react. The human body produces special proteins called antibodies to fight germs like the virus that causes COVID-19. Vaccines introduce weakened or killed parts of pathogens, or elements that mimic their structure, into the body.
COVID-19 vaccines cause your body to safely develop antibodies that recognize and fight the coronavirus that causes the disease, greatly reducing the risk for full-scale infection.
Do you have COVID-19 and are at high risk of severe symptoms? There's a treatment option that may help.
Where Can You Donate Plasma?
There are many options for donating convalescent plasma for the treatment of hospitalized, critically ill COVID-19 patients. If you have recovered from COVID-19, you can help others recover.
If you are a healthcare provider treating hospitalized COVID-19 patients, consider talking to your patients about inpatient treatment trials.
